Polis Calls on Congress to End Marijuana Prohibition

Speaking alongside industry advocates, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) called Wednesday for Congress to end the prohibition on marijuana, stressing the need to reduce drug violence while hailing the medical cannabis market's capacity for growing the economy. "Ending the failed policy of prohibition with regard to marijuana will strike a major blow against the criminal cartels that are terrorizing Americans and Mexicans on both sides of the border," Polis said at the National Press Club, in response to a question from Raw Story. "It's been estimated that the drug cartels drive about half of ...

Jared Polis has ideas for closing federal budget gap

Although the so-called Gang of Six's proposalfor averting debt-ceiling catastrophe is getting the lion's share of attention right now, Representative Jared Polis has floated some revenue-raising ideas of his own, which the media has largely winnowed down to this: Legalizing marijuana would help close the budget gap. But if that shortchanges some of his other notions, Polis's spokesman isn't complaining. "You can't really blame the media for focusing on a controversial issue when you raise a controversial issue," says Polis communications director Chris Fitzgerald. "If it brings attention to ...

Loveland Reporter-Herald: Polis discusses innovation, funding with TSD
Congressman Jared Polis didn't hide his excitement Thursday when he heard about the Thompson School District's new graduation guidelines at a meeting with district staff and the Board of Education. There are three types of diplomas students can receive to graduate, one of which requires concurrent enrollment of a course to receive college credit. The goal, according to Chief Academic Officer Margaret Crespo, is for every student to at least be exposed to advanced-level academics. "You guys have that?" Polis, D-Colo., asked, adding his congratulations. "That's my favorite thing to talk about." Polis said after the meeting that he's excited about the district implementing such a guideline. "It's a very innovative way to show kids that they can master community college or college-level courses while they're in high school," he said. "And what we have seen nationally from that kind of participation is they're more likely to be able to succeed in college. So that's very exciting." Pol
Greeley Tribune: Rep. Polis stops at two Greeley schools in education tour
After touring the Greeley Early College Academy and Salida del Sol Academy on Thursday morning, Rep. Jared Polis said he was impressed by the schools' innovation. "To have the opportunity for high school kids to get an associate degree at the same time as their high school diploma is an enormous benefit," he said of the Early College Academy, 5590 11th St. Polis, a Boulder Democrat, has been rumored as a possible candidate in the crowded field for the Democratic nomination for Colorado governor. Already, Rep. Ed Perlmutter, former state Treasurer Cary Kennedy, businessman Noel Ginsburg and former state lawmaker Mike Johnston have announced their intention to run in 2018. In the Republican field, Aurora District Attorney George Brauchler, former state lawmaker Victor Mitchell and Loveland resident JoAnne Silva, a former banker, have declared their candidacies. Incumbent Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, is term limited. In his Greeley visit, Polis acknowledged he is thinking about
Denver Post Op-Ed: Leave cannabis regulation to the states, Mr. President
It turns out we are more the rule than the exception here in Colorado: A majority of Americans now live in an area that allows legal access to recreational or medical marijuana. You only have to look to the success of Colorado to see why the legalization of cannabis has occurred throughout the nation. Colorado has proven that allowing responsible adults to legally purchase marijuana gives money to classrooms rather than cartels; creates jobs rather than addicts; and boosts the economy rather than the prison population. Even still, the new Trump administration has failed to articulate a clear policy on where it stands on the federal regulation of marijuana. Instead, states and the industry have been trying to read between the lines of contradictory statements from the new administration. Other states have decriminalized possession of marijuana or made medical marijuana accessible.  The reality is that we can’t go backward. At stake is a growing industry that has created
Polis statement on White House’s comments regarding Holocaust
Washington: Rep. Jared Polis, D-Colo., gave the following statement regarding White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s comments regarding the Holocaust.  Spicer said, in part, “You had someone as despicable as Hitler who did not even sink to using chemical weapons” when talking about Syria.  "As a member of the Jewish community, I am hurt every time our history is denied, and as an American and human being, I am appalled by Sean Spicer's recent assertion that Hitler did not use chemical weapons. It is a fact that the Nazis used lethal gas to murder millions of Jews and other minorities. To say the contrary is to undermine the memory of each innocent victim. Every time the administration spews alternative facts, the entire nation suffers and loses credibility worldwide. I strongly implore the administration to retract the comparison set out by Sean Spicer. If we deny history, we're bound to repeat it." ###
